Ok first off i have a new appreciation for installers.. my level of car speaker install is basically +1. I swapped out the rear deck 5x7's about a year ago in my 97' Mazda 626. Easy to swap them out.
Yesterday i wanted to swap out the front door speakers.. for me.. it was and is not easy. I had trouble getting the door panel off. hidden screws were screwing with me. :p THEN, the black gooey adhesive that got on everything, my hands, my pants, my head unit, my seats, my carpet, my window?? Crap, i hate black adhesive.
So i finally get the stock speaker out.. and it has some kind of funky Ford/Maza connection that I've never seen before. i try to remove the wires from it.. no go. I finally get the dang plastic thing unplugged.. but now I will either have to cut the wires and put new ends on them or something. Either way, it's becoming more involved than I though it should be.
Ok, i'm almost done with this story.. to make a long story.. semi short.. i'm having CC finish the install.. at this point I don't mind paying for someone to do the install.
Just though you all would get a nice laugh out of it. Now I gotta spend part of the day removing that black sticky adhesive off of everything. Wish me luck. ;)
